Roger Federer and wife Mirka are looking out for new nannies during the tennis shutdown. According to the Swiss daily, BLICK, Federer’s two nannies, who help look after Myla, Charlene (both 10 years old) and Lenny and Leo (both 5 years old), have reportedly quit.

 

 

The two nannies are sisters and have accompanied the Federers on many trips over the years on the tennis circuit while Roger played tournaments. They were also seen in the stands at times as the children watched their father play.

With the tennis tour being shutdown and Federer recuperating from his knee surgery earlier this year, Roger and Mirka have been at home for the past few weeks and will continue to be at home in Switzerland until the current health crisis subsidies.

That should give them enough time to look out for new nannies. Federer has said that he and his family are now spending time at home in Lenzerheide, He urged all people in Switzerland to follow the guidelines and stay indoors and also said that Mirka and he were personally donating one million Swiss francs to the most vulnerable families in Switzerland.

Federer said in his message, “Our contribution is just a start. We hope that others will join in order to support even more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy!” 38 year old Federer is currently ranked No. 4 in the world. He has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles in his career – the most by any male tennis player in history.

Roger Federer’s wife Mirka has not been seen in the Swiss player’s box over the last few months. She last attended a match live at the Laver Cup in Geneva, then she did not travel with their four children to Shanghai and Mirka was not on the grounds at the Basel’s Swiss Indoors either.

Robert Federer, Roger’s father, clarified everything is okay. He also denied that Mirka is pregnant again for the third time. “She is doing perfectly fine, there is no reason to worry at all, she is just taking a bit of a time out, she also Needs to manage her own time.”

This year Roger went alone without his family at the French Open, which rarely happens in a Grand Slam. Meanwhile, MexTenis Director Raul Zurutuza spoke about people re-selling their tickets for the exhibition match between Federer and the German Alexander Zverev scheduled to take place later this month: “I accept criticism, I feel responsible but I cannot be responsible of a bad thing like the re-ticket sale that I cannot control.

It’s a problem that happens to everyone, to the Formula 1, NBA, among the others.” Asked if Federer may come to Mexico again after this year, Zurutuza replied: “I would be very happy to do something with him because we are sure he would love Mexico, we are pretty sure it will happen.”

WATCH : Andre Agassi revealed a shocking information on what makes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal special

WATCH : Andre Agassi speaks on what makes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal so special

Andre Agassi the former World No. 1 from USA was part of one of the most fiercest rivalry in tennis which he had with fellow countryman Pete Sampras.

Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras met each other 34 times on the court in which Pete emerged victorious 20 times and Agassi 14 times. Both the Americans were always in battle for the top rankings and dominated the entire tennis of 90s. While Sampras won 14 Grand Slams, Agassi won 8 but won all the 4 Grand Slams which Pete couldn’t do as his best run at French Open was till the semis.

Tennis fans were lucky as they did not have to wait for much long post the conclusion of the Agassi-Sampras rivalry as a new rivalry had already started which produced matches of highest level. Swiss Maestro Roger Federer and King of Clay Rafael Nadal had started showing colours of what they were going to do in the coming years on the tour.

Andre Agassi recently appeared as a guest on ‘The Ranveer Show’ an interview hosted by Ranveer Allahbadia on YouTube in which Agassi talked about his auto-biography ‘Open’, The Big 3 of tennis, his learnings from his wife Steffi Graf, Federer-Nadal rivalry and various other things.

Answering a question on what makes Federer and Nadal so special, Agassi explained how every top player brings something special to the game that nobody has ever seen before giving the examples of Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, himself and others,

“When you saw Pete come in, nobody had a serve like him before. It was just remarkable. Everybody had to deal with it. Mine was ball striking, taking the ball early on both sides. Nobody played that way when I came in the game so.” said Agassi.

“When you look at Fed for example, I played him in the finals of the 2005 US Open and there was no safe place on the court. He probably had the best forehand in the world. When he played (Andy) Roddick, he aced Roddick more than Roddick aced him.”

“Then Rafa comes along and brings such enormous spin to the game that it actually changes the rules of engagement.

“Great players always do something that nobody else does” says Andre Agassi

Talking about the things Federer and Nadal changed, Andre Agassi said, “His (Federer) movement was a joke, his hands at net were a joke, his versatility was a joke. He might have had 5 things individually better than everybody on the tour. It’s hard to beat that guy.”

“You have two things with Rafa that clearly stand out to me, because he can hit the ball and it does not inward bounces, that changes position in the court where you can play and off-sets a lot of others. His power of movement, his strength and endurance and physicality is kind of unmatched.

“When you look at all these great players they always do something that nobody else does and that’s what gives them the chance to sit at No. 1 for a period of time.”

Agassi was part of some of the biggest rivalries during his 2-decade long career and like all other tennis fans considers himself lucky enough to witness the great Federer-Nadal rivalry.

In a press conference in Paris on Sunday Rafael Nadal was asked what he did after his wedding with his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello on Saturday October 19. The Spaniard said: “I played a charity exhibition in Kazakhstan for my foundation.

Novak came to Kazakhstan to play for my foundation. So that was — I can’t thank him enough. So have been great feelings. But obviously after the wedding I have the Sunday off. And then Monday, Tuesday, practice; Wednesday, flying to Kazakhstan; and Thursday late night here.

I take my weeks off during the season, and we decided that well. And in the world of tennis, you have to find your priorities, and we decided the way that we wanted to do. We take our time off before the wedding, and now is the moment to be back on the tour.”

On his schedule looking to the next weeks, Nadal concluded: “My program, everybody knows, is here, London, and Madrid. But as always, depends on how I feel.” Meanwhile the defending champion Karen Khachanov said: “It’s great to be back in this place, everything has started at a top level.

It was like a turning point when you beat four top ten players winning my maiden Masters 1000. It’s been one year, it looks like yesterday, it goes fast, a lot of things happen, it’s a long journey and this year at the beginning it was not so great but overall it was a good and positive season. You always expect something bigger than yourself but it could be worse and it’s about improvement.”

‘Here almost everyone knows who I am but they are always calm’, the Swiss said in a recent press conference. ‘There was a time of my life when I tried not to make myself get recognized from other people. I went to the supermarket wearing sunglasses, hat, scarf.

Almost like it happens in movies! It was a short time to be honest because I was not that comfortable with it.’ The writer David Foster Wallace described seeing Federer as a “religious experience”. Can it be stressful? ‘Obviously.

Especially because I am aware that it will last until I am able to win. One day even my figure will not be so much at the centre of attention.’ Is he worried by it? ‘No. I worked with Stefan Edberg and he was my idol since I was a kid.
